Senate Dems Shun Governors Relieve For Municipalities

Unionized Public Employee Saddle Municipalities With Hundreds Of Millions Of Dollars In Sick And Vacation Time Payouts. 

Senator Tom Kean (R-21)Senators Tom Kean, Jr. (R- Union) and Joe Kyrillos (R- Monmouth) said that Legislative Democrats are seeking to preserve jackpot payouts for municipal employees at the expense of New Jersey's Taxpayers

Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-13)“Current employees, who are left untouched by the Democrats’ sham sick leave reform bill, have racked up $825 million in unused leave time that will be paid for by the taxpayers,” said Senator Kean. “There is no excuse to allow these employees to continue to accumulate time that may be cashed out upon retirement on top of that $825 million, as has been proposed by Legislative Democrats.”

“There’s no defensible reason to add to the taxpayers’ burden,” said Kyrillos. “Democrats seem to be genetically incapable of embracing common sense reform.”  Read More

Senate Re-Loads On Independent Contractor Misclassification

Senators Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) have introduced the Payroll Fraud Prevention Act (S. 770), as a trimmed-down version of last years the Employee Misclassification Prevention Act Taking a cue from state legislators that have labeled new state laws involving wage violations as a form of “payroll theft,” the sponsors of the bill characterize misclassification of employees as a form of “payroll fraud.”
It the bill were to be enacted, it would expand the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (which currently addresses minimum wage, overtime, and child labor laws) to cover misclassification of employees as independent contractors. It would create a new definition of workers called “non-employees,” impose upon businesses the obligation to provide a classification notice for both “non-employees” and “employees,” make the misclassification of “employees” as “non-employees” a new labor law offense, and expose businesses to fines of up to $5,000 per worker for each violation of the lawRead More

Make No Mistake, If Enacted This Law Can Adversely Affect You And Your Business!!

EPA's Train Wreck Threatens To Derail The Economy

During a speech on small business at Cleveland State University , Obama described a goal of “knocking down barriers that stand in the way of your growth.” Unfortunately, his EPA couldn’t be more in the dark about how to implement that practice. The EPA is poised to adopt more than 30 new, major regulations and over 170 major policy rules in the next several months.

Even with 14 million Americans out of work and an economy still searching for light at the end of the tunnel, the EPA is poised to enact a series of back-door mandates that will stifle economic growth. And with the speed that this runaway train is traveling, people in every state should be scared of the “Train Wreck” headed towards a town near you.

Unfortunately, the large majority of Americans won't realize or even understand the impact of the EPA’s “Train Wreck” of new regulations on jobs, the economy and price of essential energy until it’s too late.

The truth is, the EPA itself doesn’t know what these regulations might cost to implement, although various outside analysts seem to agree that, at minimum, the 10 major rules that the EPA issued in 2010 could cost the economy at least $23 billion and nearly one million jobs. Read More
